10 January 2022 Current Affairs:The government has surveyed 17.78 lakh acres of defense land for the first time since Independence, utilizing cutting-edge technologies such as three-dimensional modelling, drones, and satellite imagery. The massive effort of surveying roughly 1.61 lakh acres of defense land inside cantonments and 16.17 lakh acres outside cantonments, according to the defense ministry, began in October 2018 and is now complete.

Highlights:
♦It is a significant feat because, for the first time since Independence, the whole defense land has been surveyed utilising cutting-edge survey technology, the report stated.
♦The size of the landholding, the positioning of land in about 4,900 pockets, inaccessible terrain in many areas, and the engagement of many stakeholders, according to the ministry, make it one of India’s “biggest” land surveys.
♦Modern survey technology such as the Electronic Total Station, Differential Global Positioning System, and drone and satellite imagery was used to assure “reliable, robust, and time-bound” results.
